Match the soft textured items to the colour zones or turn the mat over and play pattern games with the shapes. Encourage listening, observation and communication skills.
There’s a variety of objects to discover and discuss from cars, fish, a spider, a heart and an orange. Simply find the object and place it on the corresponding colour. This is a lovely introduction to shape, colour and symmetry in an informal way. It also makes a great matching pairs game. A versatile set with so many potential learning opportunities. You could even try matching with your own items.
